$79.99 (each)FREE Shipping
Hey, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com checking out a couple of upper and lower grill options available for your new V6. I'm talking about Modern Billet's retro-style upper and lower billet grills fitting all 2013 and newer Mustangs available in your choice of either black or polished. As you might have guessed from the name, Modern Billet is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang using nothing but 100% solid billet aluminum. Now if you want to see more products from Modern Billet and other companies, you have to subscribe to our YouTube channel by clicking on the banner below.These retro-style grills from Modern Billet were designed to give the front end of your 2013 and '14 V6 a totally unique look by deleting the factory honeycomb grill along with that running pony emblem. Now this makes for a more cleaner, some would even say a more aggressive look overall. In fact, I encourage you to read what some of our customers are saying about these grills by clicking on the link to go back to our site and reading up on some of those customer reviews.Taking a closer look at the grills themselves, you'll notice the upper grill does feature a 7-bar design while that lower grill features a 5-bar design. Now both are constructed using that 100% solid billet aluminum I talked about earlier and have been designed using original 4 CAD data ensuring an absolute perfect fit. Again, the grills are available in a bright polished finish. Or you can go for a slightly more subdued semi-gloss black finish like we have installed on the V6 behind me. Now whatever option you do decide to go with, you can always add an optional tri-bar pony emblem into the mix just to achieve a look similar to those iconic '60s and '70s pony cars. I did want to point out that the upper and lower grills are available separately. So, for instance, if you really dig the look of the upper grill but would prefer to leave the lower portion stock, you totally could. However, a majority of our customers really do like pairing both grills together, like we've done is this video. Not only does it really hammer home that custom retro look, but you'll also save yourself a few bucks in the process if you do purchase both at the same time. Now that upper grill has been designed as a complete replacement while the lower portion is simply an overlay. Therefore, your install times will vary slightly. The upper grill does require the removal or slight drop down of your front bumper just to gain access to all the screws and clips. Therefore, you can expect to spend about an hour getting that one done. On the other hand, since that lower grill is an overlay, it's a lot easier and it should only take you about 30 minutes from start to finish. Either way, if you did have any questions about the grills or about the installs themselves, don't hesitate to get in touch with one of our Mustang experts. If you're a big fan of the clean retro-styling made possible thanks to a set of billet grills, then you have to check out these options from Modern Billet available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Needed to be grinded a lot to fit.
You definently get what you pay for. I had to grind it out for about 30 minutes with a die grinder, and then re paint. But for under 100 bucks, not that bad.Helpful (0)

The instructions are good on how to take your bumper off but when it came to putting the grille on it didn’t make sense at all. I had to figure it out myself. Also the grille didn’t fit perfectly but I got it to workHelpful (0)

I have a 2013 V6 Pony Package. Unfortunately, use to the grille they come with, this grille didn’t fit. This is simply the insert (I know this is shown, but I wasn’t aware that the grille of a pony package is an entire piece including the surround the Billit is supposed to attach to).Helpful (2)

Wasn’t even close to fitting inside The grille surround. I got it in but could not get it centered. Will be taking it out and grinding the edges which means I will also have to repaint it. DisappointedHelpful (6)

Install was a little tricky due to directions not being very clear. Pictures didn't show where to drill very well. The paint also chipped as I was placing it in very easily. Looks good though but a little disappointed by the quality.Helpful (6)
How do you go about lowering the bumper cover without fully removing it like shown in the video on this page? Also, I've seen some people mention in comments that they've been able to simply pull out the factory grille and pop in the new grille without even removing the bumper cover at all. Is this really possible?
I have actually done the installation both ways. With the lower grille you will definitely need to remove the bumper cover since you need access to the back of the lower grille. If you are just installing the upper grille you can simply pull out the upper grille without removing the bumper. In our video the front bumper was completely removed. It appears that it was only lowered because it was not pulled away from the vehicle.
Will this grill increase airflow to a CAI?
The grill will allow flow to the radiator to help with cooling. You won't experience any performance gain what so ever, this is just a cosmetic modification.
Has anyone noticed that it fades? Had mine on for 1 1/2 years and it's now a light matte black instead of the glossy finish that it used to be.
The Modern Billet Black Retro Grille should not fade, however if this has faded, we recommend using a cleaner wax to bring back the shine to the grille.
What is the difference between the 2014 V6 Premium and the 2014 V6 Pony Package? I bought the 2014 V6 Premium and im pretty sure i dont have the pony package but i do not know for sure.
Hi, The easiest way to determine if you have 2014 Pony package is if you have fog lights and a pony grille then its a pony package and if it is this Modern Billet Black Retro Grille will not fit.
Whats the best paint to use to paint the surrounding chrome part?
They have you re-use the existing chrome looking grille surround. You will just have to sand and paint it black to make it match, that is what I did and it looks great!
No, you will have to paint the chrome part. Very easy.
The Modern Billet Retro Upper grille is a replacement grille and will fully replace your MCoA grille. The lower grille is an overlay and will not fit over the MCoA lower grille.
